“Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself; but talent instantly recognizes genius.” – Arthur Conan Doyle, The Valley of Fear.
Sherlock Holmes has always been great at deducing crimes. One of the best detectives the fictional world has ever seen comes to TV played by one of the most talented actors of this generation, Benedict Cumberbatch, but has this talent recognized that the TV show was genius or is this just another mediocre TV show?
For those of you who don’t know (and if you don’t, you probably live under a rock) who Sherlock Holmes is, he is a consulting detective who uses brilliant logic and observation as well as a vast knowledge to solve crimes. He was originally created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and first appeared in the late nineteenth century. Obviously the character is extremely popular since he is still around over 110 years later. Does the TV show stack up?
Sherlock stays true to what a Sherlock Holmes work of fiction should, a combination of brilliance and mystery with a little bit of action thrown in. The partnership of Benedict Cumberbath and Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson is a perfect duo while the show continuously keeps one’s attention.
Positives: Acting is superb. Stays true to Sherlock Holmes. Great Combination of mystery, suspense and action which keeps the viewers hooked.
Sherlock is absolutely brilliant. Great acting with a great story/mystery in each episode. Each episode is an hour and a half so if you would like to watch a complete episode, make sure you have time to spare.
